OBITUARY:

Joseph J. Nowosielski, a longtime resident of Woburn, passed away quietly on early Monday morning, at the Woburn Nursing Center. The beloved husband of Virginia A. (Seminatore) Nowosielski, he was eighty-eight years of age. Born in Cambridge, Joe was one of six children born to the late Mr. And Mrs. John Nowosielski. Educated in Cambridge, he was the Valedictorian of his class at Ringe Technical High School and also served as the head alter boy for St. Hedwig’s Church in Cambridge. In 1942, he entered the United States Army Air Corps where he served an air operation specialist during WWII seeing action in the European Theatre. Proud of his service to his country, Joe was extremely patriotic and never missed the occasion to reunite with his buddies from his company battalion.

In 1950, Joe, who was a photo lithographer by profession, took a position at Tichnor Brothers in Boston. His first day on the job was a fortuitous one, as he met his future wife, Virginia, on that day. They had their first date on Saturday night of the same week and this blossomed into sixty-two years of devotion and love to one another. The Nowosielski’s made their home, which he himself built, in Woburn, where their raised their son and daughter. He was an incredibly gifted woodworker and could virtually build anything. His talents as a photographer and woodworker were equally matched by his wonderful sense of humor and creativity. He loved to laugh, even at his own expense and would often send little notes in the mail to his wife, inviting her out for an evening of dining and dancing, the later of which he did beautifully. He and his wife love to travel with their children visiting destinations as far as Canada and Florida. After his retirement in 1984 from Consolidated Graphics in Needham, he and his wife ventured on trip across the country. Joe was also a sports enthusiast and always made Super Bowl Sunday a yearly celebration. A devoted and loving, husband, father and grandfather, Joe leaves a legacy of kindness, gentleness and generosity.

Mr. Nowosielski was predeceased by his siblings, Wanda Bradley, John and Anthony Nowosielski.

He is lovingly survived by his wife, Virginia A. (Seminatore) Nowosielski, his children Joyce D. Nowosielski and Robert J. Nowosielski and his wife Patricia, all of Woburn, his siblings, Helen Fitzgerald of CA, Walter Nowosielski of Saugus, Edward Nowosielski of Brookline, Stella Autino of Littleton and his grandchildren, Sara Gorrasi, Amy, Laura and Michael Nowosielski.
